Mika Brzezinski is trying to get Trump kicked off Twitter; we should support her

MSNBC / YouTube Mika Brzezinski Responds To President Donald 1590432191.jpg...

It remains bizarre to me that Donald Trump is the president of the United States. If I’d woken up yesterday from a 20-year coma to discover Carrot Top or Fred “Rerun” Berry was president, I would have been marginally less surprised.

But the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency is even more shocking than the fact that he’s president. It’s as if the guy who ends up in the county jail twice a week for masturbating in the Chuck E. Cheese ball pit was suddenly given a reality show … and that show is on every channel … and we’re all pretty much forced to watch.

So when Trump does shit like this …

… we sigh and move on with our day, because Donald Trump being a raging, irresponsible asshole has become such an ordinary fact of life, it’s often difficult to summon the appropriate measure of anger.

Well, Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough’s wife and MSNBC co-host, has had enough. She wants Trump bounced off Twitter over the above tweet and a boatload of other transgressions, and she seems prepared to do something about it.

Back in October, Twitter issued some tepid backwash about world leaders (i.e., Trump — no one else behaves this way) and their tweets.

It went on and on, but the gist was captured in this sentence:

In other cases involving a world leader, we will err on the side of leaving the content up if there is a clear public interest in doing so.

Uh-huh. What’s the public interest in falsely accusing a media figure who’s been critical of you of murder? Seriously. I’ll wait.

Granted, getting Trump kicked off Twitter — or even suspended — is a long shot. But at the very least, those of us with Twitter accounts can retweet Brzezinski’s demand for action.

Others have gone a step further:

Oh, and it’s not just us snowflakes who are concerned. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican U.S. representative from Illinois, ripped into the moldering muskmelon head as well:

Other than being concerned about government reprisals, I can’t imagine why Twitter would let this go on. Common decency alone demands that it end.

You’d rather listen to the dimwit fruit cake in the White House. Twitter allows all the BS going, but let send one else tweet and they are suspended. They condone the idiot or he’s paying them off. I don’t think MSNBC will miss you.

No there isn’t a lot of interest in this story. Joe was 900 miles away. She wasn’t a intern. She answered constituent concerns in his Florida office. She wasn’t a marathoner. She worked that day. Complained of feeling poorly & canceled a girls night out because of it. She died of a subdural hematoma from passing out & hitting her head on the desk & was found by a couple going to the office for a permit. No foul play. No conspiracy. Twitter allows trump to do this stuff. If I went on twitter about trump murdering somebody & conspiracy… Read more »

Let’s get the #OrangeShitGibbon off of Twitter permanently. He’s more of an asswipe than QAnon. Problem is that, while some people are stupid enough that they actually believe the totally crazy conspiracy theories of QAnon, there are even more astoundingly stupid morons who listen to what the #TangerineTurd says and tweets. Since absolutely NOTHING Trump tweets is of any importance whatsoever and is, of course, a lie like everything which comes from him, there IS NO REASON tp be subjected to his shit.
